Reducing Myself Monday
Today I weight.....137.5!
So down 1.5 lbs since 2 weeks ago, and down 6.5 lbs since I started 'Reducing Myself Monday' back in May.
Hus and I have been tracking our meals based on the 'old' weight watchers points. It took some getting used to at first, but we're getting the hang of it. I love that there are no totally forbidden foods, so I was able to eat some dark chocolate, a friend's home-baked chocolate chip cookies, and drink some wine last week. And the 35 weekly points are a lifesaver. I have this week's reserved for Thursday night. I've organized a 30 year anniversary party for our union local and have ordered a chocolate cake with a custard centre for it!
Hus has also seen results. He's lost 12 lbs since New Years. Part of it has to do with energy expended at work - shovelling the massive amount of snow we've been getting, but he is also very stringent in counting points.
